Raelene Byrne – Solar Flares

GOLDEN AGE OF GAIA

A solar flare occurs when magnetic energy that has built up in the solar atmosphere is suddenly released. Radiation is emitted across virtually the entire electromagnetic spectrum, from radio waves at the long wavelength end, through optical emission to x-rays and gamma rays at the short wavelength end.

The pineal gland which regulates circadian rhythm and melatonin production is sensitive to magnetic fields. According to Russian scientist A.L. Tchijevsky, 80% of the most significant human events occured during a 5 year period surronding the peak of solar activity.

How Do Solar Flares Affect Us?

A recent study in the New Scientist magazine indicates a direct connection between the Sun’s solar storms and the human biological system. The conduit which steers Earth’s weather through the Magnetic Field on Earth is the same conduit that facilitates the influx of charged particles from the Sun through the magnetic (auric) field around the human body.

The increase in the frequency and amplitude of geomagnetic sun storms is causing large-scale planetary changes which include earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, tornadoes, and windstorms. There is also indication of human disturbance as result of the solar activity.

Geomagnetic Activity Influences Human Consciousness

Solar activity is known to influence human consciousness. Solar flares affect the Central Nervous System, all brain activity (including equilibrium), human behavior patterns, and all of our psycho-physiological (mental/emotional/physical) responses.

Symptomatically, solar flares can cause us to feel nervous, anxious, worried, jittery, dizzy, irritable, lethargic, exhausted, nauseous, and queasy. Some people may become unusually forgetful, and others may experience heart palpitations. People may also endure periods of prolonged head pressure and headaches.

Clearing Our Cellular Memories

The solar flares and photonic waves emanating from the sun are changing the fabric of our physical reality
as they exert a powerful effect on our physical cellular level, causing our cellular memories to awaken and clear.

Unprocessed emotions from past traumas and experiences are stored in the form of low frequency energy as cellular memories. Photonic waves from the sun consist of higher frequency energy that serves to elevate the lower emotional frequency of our cellular memories.

As these cellular memories are re-calibrated to the higher frequency, we may find ourselves spontaneously releasing the lower emotions of sadness, anger, and grief, without knowing why. These sudden periods of ‘release’ may last up to twenty minutes, and may also include the sensation of the body heating up in the form of a “hot flash”. It may feel like a surge of unexpected feelings has surfaced from out of the blue, and have just as suddenly dissipated.

Awakening Our Soul Purpose

The elements of our Divine Blueprint are interwoven within our cellular memory. The recent infusion of photonic energies is amplifying our cellular memory, causing various elements of our Divine Blueprint to leak into our waking consciousness.

As a result, many people are beginning to remember their Soul Purpose, and are suddenly driven to make changes in their lives to realign with a sense of higher purpose.

Instant Manifestation

Another ramification of the influx of photonic energy is that since it represents a higher frequency, it increases the power, speed, and manifestation capacity of our thoughts. We are quite literally able to exercise ‘instant manifestation’; whatever we think, we create instantly. We have never before experienced this heightened level of manifestation potential.

Photonic energy blends with the vibratory frequency our thoughts, so it is vitally important that we place our attention on what we want to create, rather than what we do not want to manifest in our lives. We will manifest rapidly in the direction of our thoughts, and it is up to us to decide where to direct our attention.

For those of us in the process of positive change and transformation, this energy is empowering and advantageous. On the other hand, those who are stuck in the past through victimization and anger will continue to manifest even more negativity, until they are ready to release the old way of ‘being’ and shift to a higher, more positive vibration.

The good news is that we have free will to decide how we choose to use this rich and accessible resource of electromagnetic energy.

Additional Affects of Recent Solar Flares

The increased frequency and intensity of solar flares is helping to break apart old patterns that are no longer needed so that new patterns can emerge. This is a dynamic and inevitable process of change that has caused many people to feel agitated and uncertain in recent months. Solar flares have also wreaked havoc on technological instruments such as computers.

As the increase in solar activity persists, new symptoms are emerging. Dimensions of time and space are beginning to ‘wobble’ erratically. Some people seem to be losing track of time, and/or they are losing words when speaking. For others, the day seems to simply disappear.

A number of people are having difficulty sleeping, tossing & turning in the night and often experiencing unusual dreams. Others report that when they close their eyes at night, the world around them spins.

Some of us are feeling huge power surges in our bodies; these surges are often followed by a drop in energy level. There are reports of nausea, body aches, pains, and dizziness. Some people are feeling a sense of overwhelming grief, while others are experiencing euphoria. There are reported cases of visual disturbances, inner ear issues, buzzing in ears, throat and thyroid issues, and cold feet.

What To Do If You Are Sensitive to Solar Storm Activity

If you are experiencing any of the aforementioned effects, don’t worry– be happy! We are being offered a unique and powerful opportunity to consciously participate in the rapid advancement in our evolution as energetic beings.

Our auric/energy systems are being re-calibrated to resonate at a much higher, finer frequency. The more informed and aware we are of the changes taking place, the more empowered we are to embrace this process as a necessary step towards the betterment of our lives.

We are growing in the direction of mental, emotional, and spiritual awakening, with the extraordinary help of the Sun! On a practical, physical level, we can mitigate some of the more challenging effects of our energetic evolution by getting extra rest and drinking lots of water. For those who live near the ocean, a walk on the beach (or better yet, a swim!) will help to balance the incoming energies.

In the meantime, we can all fasten our seat-belts, and enjoy the ride!

– Dana Mrkich – Finally an M Flare – Thank You Sun! – 8-1-14

Dana Mrkich

The very heavy energy of the past days (weeks?) is finding release today as the Sun finally unleashes an M Class solar flare after weeks of quiet. We are so attuned to solar energies these days, and I’ve found that this period of quiet created a build-up of emotional energy within us that rose to an uncomfortable crescendo in the past few days. Physically the body can only take so much, so many of you may have found yourselves wiped out with fatigue, the flu or physical soreness. As the sun flared this morning, the release of that energy is palpable.It is like a big exhale after having to hold your breath for too long. I get an image of strings and strings and strings of old energy being gathered together until it turned into a huge ball with all of us contributing. 

This gathering process that July revolved around has felt intense and exhausting to say the least, but then today this ball was given a huge throw into the universal recycling bin on behalf of us all. No longer do we need to process things with a hundred therapy sessions. Thank you Sun for sweeping so much old stuff away with a big flare wooshka! I for one appreciate it.

Saint Germain – Solar Flares, NESARA, Galactic Energies – Channeler Meline Lafont – 2-26-14

Channeled by Méline Lafont   /   February 26, 2014

(Note from Méline: Saint Germain has been speaking about this to me in my private space for some weeks now since he is at the moment more consciously present on our Earthly planes, but I never found the time to actually sit down and allow a channeling about this to come through. Finally I grabed the chance a few days ago and made some space for this message.)

Greetings, my beloved friends, it is I, Saint Germain providing news, a lot of news actually. Now and then I enjoy stepping in with important news referring more to present events while at other times I prefer to give you more profound actualizations which are having a deeper impact on your Ascension process. Well, this message contains both approaches.

The year 2014, which is the first year of the actualization of all your wishes, your realities, your creations and your preparations, has already brought about many initial shifts. For starters I am more specifically referring to the intense solar flares which are having an enormous impact on your Earthly reality and also on your current consciousness and your embodiment.

Never underestimate those enormous powers and impulses as they represent a crucial link in this global Ascension process. More than ever they rush towards you with more powerful impulses and at an even faster pace than you could ever imagine. Be forewarned, my friends, it will all intensify and increase even more! This will help to achieve more awakenings and more shifts coming to pass in your Earthly reality. Up until now, the increase in solar flares has been a kind of ‘terra incognita’, an unknown region for many of you because the intensity of those flares has never reached such proportions as they have now.

Each solar flare is in itself a huge creation and an activation which contributes to the actualization of your inner Self within your very own environment, within your reality as well as within your own embodiment. The majority of the Lightworkers and Masters on this planet who are ready for this are embodying the merger of their I AM Presence and the Christ Consciousness, all of this evolving along different phases.

That might require even more grounding and relaxing as well as more resting and a certain expertise in order to convert them into an inner creativity and a balance. It calls for a way to penetrate your reality and your consciousness, but it also requires a means to manifest itself in the ALL by way of your reality and your embodiment. Your bodies and your consciousness are crucially important in this whole process.

It is not only the human consciousness that manifests its visualized forms and its creations but also the global consciousness in its entirety across the entire planet, of all the creations on Earth and beyond, takes on forms and creations as we are talking about a planetary – and a solar shift which also concern and have an impact on other planets and other realities/Dimensions.

As a collective consciousness you are becoming increasingly more aligned not just with each other as the human race but also with the elementals of nature, with the animal kingdoms and even with the world of fairies. The more you are aligned on the same level and on the same vibration with the animals and the elemental kingdom, as well as with the higher Dimensional beings such as the fairies and the Devas, the more your consciousness will expand towards a more Galactic union and a merger of consciousnesses.

The Galactic Federation already started their plans to guarantee an effective presence on a planetary level for all those of you who are ready for this. Depending on each one’s reality, on the intention of the heart, on their respective consciousness and vibration, contacts will be made in such a way and on such a frequency level that you can easily handle it. If you still adhere to the consciousness where separation is still present than that fact will be reflected accordingly. If, on the other hand, you represent the consciousness of Oneness and of tolerance than a more consciousness merger will take place with these Galactic energies which allow you to become more aware of your Multi Dimensional aspects of yourSelf.

The more you are the Master of your own Being, meaning that you stay in your own power in the heart and that you are in balance, the more you will be able to determine and to create in what manner you wish to experience your very first Galactic contact for yourself. There are numerous possibilities and they are all at your disposal for your well-being. Enjoy the upcoming creations and the more conscious interactions and explorations with those Galactic aspects of yourSelf and with your family of the Light.

Quite a number of ships has actually landed as permission for this has been granted by the collective consciousness. However, we await anxiously what the political response will be concerning our presence amongst the human population, that issue is now the order of the day. A certain amount of very important breakthroughs are coming your way and covering not only the Galactic consciousness but so much more.

One such issues concerns Nesara as I have pored very hard over it these past few weeks. The Cosmic Law pertaining to the pleading of unconditional Love and Freedom has arrived at your shores. The breakthrough has already manifested itself and has come to pass. Firstly everything gets accomplished on an etheric level before a planetary shift takes place, but do not forget, my beloveds, that you are the ones in control as to what may transpire in your personal reality. So, in a nutshell, you are the ones to decide when and how all of this is going to occur in its final phase. I am the one who paves the way for you to enable this and to help bring it to fruition.

Only the collective consciousness can authorize and allow what will happen next, this with the cooperation of your own Divine powers, I work with your energies and with your consciousness to determine where I can assist to reach a breakthrough or where I still need to lend a helping hand to succour the powers involved. You can view it as an orb of Light energy which is handed over to me from all of you, and in itself it symbolizes your heart creations and your inner powers for change. This orb of Light energy allows me to accomplish everything that is contained in it due to my manifestation powers whereafter I can pave the way politically as high up as possible. Without that orb of creations I can not interfere as interference is not allowed without your consent, your cooperation, your openness, and your growth in consciousness. The more that this orb contains the unity, the cooperation and the heart intentions, the more powerful it becomes.

There have been many discussions these past few months, a lot of preparatory work has been done even though you are not aware of that. Nevertheless, some of you are utterly aware of what went on and were able to pick up some memories. Your patience will be rewarded, a fact that is becoming more and more evident.

Leave the attitude of waiting for something to happen behind you as things are not entirely done for you; they are done through you and with all of you, as together we form a unity that can stack all powers that will create effective shifts and changes. We can only function as a link or as an assistant, however the rest remains your own collective experience, your own possibility/creation because it is your consciousness that marks and realises everything here on this planet.

I am not the saviour of this planet rather I distribute my consciousness and my Master energies in a strong and constant way on this reality as a contribution in this process of Ascension as it is the Age of Aquarius which represents my pure energy and my powers by way of the Violet Flame.

Let’s all empower now this collective consciousness and let’s continue as one and the same Source of Love so that the way to eternal freedom and to a careless existence can be accomplished. Together we will achieve the planetary Ascension as perfectly as possible; we are nothing without each other and we are everything in ourself.

I AM that I AM

James Gilliland – Gamma Ray Bursts, Solar Flares, Cosmic Rays, Shifts In Human Consciousness

james_gilliland1

www.eceti.org    www.bbsradio.com    www.worldpuja.net

As many know we are getting bombarded by gamma ray bursts, solar flares, cosmic rays and other magnetic influences due to the alignment with Galactic Plane. As many are observing the unprecedented increase in earthquake, volcanic eruptions along with severe weather, what we are not seeing is how these energies affect human consciousness.

The earth is expanding, busting at the seams, yet we are expanding as well. These energies affect the bioelectric fields surrounding the human body all the way down to the DNA level. We have subtle more refined bodies; a body within a body and these bodies hold consciousness and energy. What is held within these bodies or your fields is being activated, energized and there is nowhere to hide from this process.

Try as you might that wounded little child will not have its way. Within the greatest of all tyrants, the cruelest, coldhearted people is a wounded little girl or boy. We all have this to one degree or another.  The wounds, traumas and wrong conclusions from past experiences are all being energized, activated and they are creating our tomorrows. The pain, sadness, anger, trespasses, unloving acts experienced in past lives and in childhood are all held within these fields.

The higher consciousness and energy are activating them, bringing them up to the surface, magnetizing people, places and events to each and every one of us so that we may heal and release the past. Love is the ultimate power in the Multiverse and love is the catalyst for this healing process. It is the love of God/Creator/ Source/Great Spirit, what ever name you want to give it coming down through the dimensions that is activating this process.

You will see this process acted out in many ways individually and collectively yet do not get caught up in the manifestations, become the observer, see the cause. A great master once said in every experience it all boils down to two things. Love and lack of love. Fear, anger, sadness, sorrow, transgressions, selfish, separative acts, even violent acts, all come from the lack of love.

In most cases it is the lack of love experienced in our childhood and the experiences and environment in which we established how we see and create the world in which we live. Buddha said, “We are what we think, all that we are arises in our thoughts, with our thoughts we create the world.” A little addendum can be applied to this and that is collectively we are all creating and there are a lot of wounded creators out there some taking the upward spiral, some taking the downward spiral.

Although we focus on love, joy, bliss, service to others there will always be those with a different truth. The problem in addressing this is to not become what you are against. Again the answer is to become the observer, take responsibility and be accountable for your creations, the people and events you magnetized to you as a reflection of your consciousness and become an example. The best leaders lead by example. Do not get caught up in reactionary mind, try to hold the creationary mind focusing on what you want, not what you don’t want, and detach from the things that no longer bring you joy.

Mary once said worry is a form of prayer, we manifest what we fear and worry about. Sometimes our projections are so great we create problems that never existed drawing reactions out of others that by nature are peaceful, loving beings. There are times when firm boundaries need to be set, tough love which means telling people what they need to hear not what they want to hear is necessary. This must be done, however, with no need for acceptance and approval outside of self and with no attachment to the outcome. It is very hard to step back, hold our selves responsible and accountable for the people and experiences we magnetize to us especially if we are running any victim patterns or have not dealt with the wounded child.

It is hard to let go of unhealthy patterns and beliefs especially when there has been temporary gain by acting out these patterns. In today’s society we have been programmed to look totally to the external, the external world will make us happy, provide our security, fulfill our hearts’ and souls’ desires; which is the greatest enslavement and tragedy.

At the height of the internal world is a loving, joyous, powerful, manifesting God/Goddess created in the same image and likeness of God. On the way there you are going to experience all the blocks, wounds, traumas, and wrong conclusions from past experiences; which create the illusion of separation. The angry, sad and wounded little child is going to vehemently demand to remain in control during this process yet it is manifesting everything it is in fear of happening again and defending against even its own healing. It is a no win situation. The deeper the pain, sorrow, wounds and traumas the more the angry little child will act out, defend and refuse to let go.

This is not rocket science it is all about consciousness and energy the vibrational continuum and an extreme jump in evolution. The source, God/Creator/Great Spirit is Love, Joy, Bliss unimaginable. As this consciousness and energy presses down upon the Earth everything that does not resonate with it has to heal. We are multidimensional beings and this consciousness and energy is moving down the vibrational continuum clearing out everything that does not resonate with it. The baser levels of consciousness are fear, guilt, anger, unworthiness, selfishness, and the false belief in separation.

Defending the ‘me’ is in ignorance of unity consciousness. These base attitudes and emotions can no longer be held within our fields or in the Earth’s fields. That grid is collapsing along with the manifestations that depend upon that grid. You are going to see this in your relationships, your physical world, your institutions; nothing will be able to maintain the lower frequencies as the vibrational lifting continues – and it is increasing exponentially.

The hertzian or physical world as we know it will collapse, phase out as the new world phases in. The greatest pain, sorrow, suffering and insecurity will come from holding onto the old world, holding onto the anger, pain, and sorrow of the past. Trying to create from the wounded child something different than what wounded it from the wounded ego. I love the saying what are you afraid of other than what you are already creating? Why not go within, heal and focus on creating a different reality? Surrender the angry, wounded little child to the higher dimensional healers within. Stop sabotaging your life, blaming others, projecting the same patterns over and over expecting a different result. These unhealed wounds and traumas are in the process of being exponentially energized. The lessons will come around again and again, yet they will become harder and harder until we surrender and get to the core of what is creating them.

Are we operating according to Universal Law? Is Universal Peace, Brotherly/Sisterly Love, Equality, Prosperity and Freedom for all the foundation in our lives? Do we understand the unified field and what it means to align with Unity Consciousness? Is there still the angry wounded little child playing the ‘me’ separation game, trying to create on the exterior what is lacking in the interior? Demanding love, respect, honesty, loyalty, and service to themselves, trying to fill a void, yet not willing to find the things they demand from others in their own expression?

It takes brutal honesty, courage, and a willingness to be accountable and responsible for our creations, the people and events in our lives we manifested and magnetized to us are there to get through this process. Very few have the tools, the understandings, and the courage. The humility to own their creations, the wounded child, and make amends, which is why so much anger, pain, violence, and unloving acts are now coming to the surface. As we said resistance is futile. The angry little child, trying to create on the exterior from a broken and wounded interior is fruitless. There is no defense from our selves and the love of God; which is activating everything within ourselves, despite our denials is pressing forward.

If you don’t believe in a higher intelligence just think of Gamma Rays as the dimensional energies, the plane of bliss slamming the Earth over and over along with solar flares and ask yourselves what might be the affect? What happens when a higher frequency in introduced to a lower frequency? It is real basic physics 101.

We are giving birth to a whole new world, a whole new us, and we need to heal and release the past if we are going to survive that birth. Observe your creations, your fields, your attitudes, emotions, release the past and surrender the wounded little child to the God within.

There will be those who will resist this message to the degree that they want to continue with the wounded child driving their boat. There are those who will take this message and bash their friends and lovers over the head with it and project blame like a crazed addict addicted to their victim patterns.

This information is for those who wish to heal them selves, understand the process Humanity and the Earth is undergoing. Release others to their own destiny and forget about the exterior. This is for interior work, for those who want to heal and become an example for others. Permission to pass far and wide.

Sun Unleashes Biggest Solar Flare of the Year Yet – 4/12/13

solar flares

Source:  Space.com

The most powerful solar flare of the year erupted from the sun today (April 11) sparking a temporary radio blackout on Earth, NASA officials say.

The solar flare occurred at 3:16 a.m. EDT (0716 GMT) and registered as a M6.5-class sun storm, a relatively mid-level flare on the scale of solar tempests. It coincided with an eruption of super-hot solar plasma known as a coronal mass ejection.

“This is the strongest flare seen so far in 2013,” NASA spokeswoman Karen Fox explained in a statement. “Increased numbers of flares are quite common at the moment, since the sun’s normal 11-year cycle is ramping up toward solar maximum, which is expected in late 2013.”

NASA’s sun-watching Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded a stunning video of the strongest solar flare of 2013, showing it extreme detail. The spacecraft is one of several space-based observatories keeping track of the sun’s solar weather events.

NASA officials dubbed today’s solar flare as a “spring fling” for the sun, which has been relatively calm as it heads into its peak activity period.

Today’s M-class solar flare was about 10 times weaker than X-class flares, which are the strongest flares the sun can unleash. M-class solar flares are the weakest solar events that can still trigger space weather effects near Earth, such as communications interruptions or spectacular northern lights displays.

The solar flare triggered a short-lived radio communications blackout on Earth that registered as an R2 event (on a scale of R1 to R5), according to space weather scales maintained NOAA, Fox added.

When aimed directly at Earth, major solar flares and coronal mass ejections can pose a threat to astronauts and satellites in orbit. They can interfere with GPS navigation and communications satellite signals in space, as well as impair power systems infrastructure on Earth.

Fox said NASA officials are tracking the coronal mass ejection to see if it poses any space weather concerns for Earth. Meanwhile, the Solar Dynamics Observatory and other space observatories will continue to monitor the sun’s activity.

“Humans have tracked this solar cycle continuously since it was discovered, and it is normal for there to be many flares a day during the sun’s peak activity,” Fox explained.
